Living Wage as Minimum Wage

Living Wage as Minimum Wage

It is our intention to present to the Ohio legislature an amendment to Ohio law, summarized here: 

BALLOT SUMMARY:  Establishes in Ohio a minimum wage that is a living wage.

We are working under an inflexible timeline, dictated by Ohio State law:
An initial written petition, signed by 1000 Ohio registered voters submitted to the Attorney General. 

This money will be used to accomplish the initial goals: 1) hire a qualified person (already identified) to write the language of the petition and the summary that appears on the signature petitions; 2) hire a company (already identified) that specializes in obtaining petition signatures. 

That means we have about two weeks to raise the money for our petition writer.. maybe a bit more, but not much. 

THIS EFFORT sponsored by Make A Difference (MAD) Ohio. We believe that if this initiative gets on the ballot for the November 3, 2020 election, a lot of people who might not have bothered to vote, will show up; and with luck, they will turn Ohio blue, and save our democracy.
